    them they need not to be abstracted from concrete reality in the sense that only concrete reality would contain them because not ALL mathematical structures are contained in concrete reality In all cases where they also are contained in concrete

    or about things that do not yet exist So BEING assigned to things has assertive meaning because not everything IS In fact the co existence of Motif and Background follows from the Principle of Contradiction probably the most fundamental principle If EVERYTHING would be RED it could just as well at the same time be NON RED This is a contradiction so we must conclude Not everything is RED On the basis of this Principle of the co existence of Motif and Background we can expect all possible kinds of states of affairs existing in Reality which relate to each other as Motive and Background like Principle Concretum Abstract able immaterial Concrete material Dynamic Static Species general universal Individual Matter Form Essence per se Accident per accidens Intrinsic Totality Aggregate Subjective knowledge Objective knowledge Motif Background Being Not being The first two pairs are more or less related and are very important in Metaphysics Concrete state of affairs are governed by non concrete principles When we consider the pair EXISTING IN ITSELF and NOT EXISTING IN ITSELF and we apply this to an abstractable feature say a mathematical pattern which we can discern IN some material objects then we should also expect immaterial beings existing AS immaterial beings to be present in the extramental material world This by the following reason The above mentioned features exist in things they do not exist in themselves and are as such present in the extramental material world But the principle of co existence of Motif and Background would demand besides the presence of these features that exist in things and which are by consequence material the presence of abstract features which do NOT exist in things and are by consequence immaterial features But this obviously implies two worlds ONE INSIDE ANOTHER a Real

    is thus not objectively observable But this is just because of the inadequateness of the particle model a model that attributes particle character to entities like electrons The behaviors of such subatomic entities sometimes yield to the particle model i e are explainable with the particle model sometimes to the wave model In both cases they are just models and it is the models that cause the above mentioned and

    each one accounting for each individual crystal The spatial distribution of those crystals as they finally end up in a rock is caused by several more or less independently operating factors relating for example to the cavity in which the melt was cooling the walls of that cavity and the location of particles serving as deposition sites All these factors belong to a much broader dynamical system and are themselves

    operational In addition to the repetition of the complete genome most higher organisms also show more genuine and concrete repetitions Such organisms generally consist of a constant number of a n t i m e r s counterparts parts repeated around the organism s main axis like the right and left body halves in bilateral animals where this number is accordingly equal to two or the several rays radii in radiate animals where it is four in hydropolypes hydromedusae and the like and five in most echinoderms starfishes and the like Further and generally in addition to it we see a repetition of parts along the organism s main axis its m e t a m e r s sequential parts like the segments of earthworms and many arthropods Here i e in the case of antimers and metamers we have to do with a genuine repetition of body parts albeit not a repetition persistently in three different spatial directions i e not a periodic repetition as we see in all single crystals Moreover the repetition as expressed by the possession of antimers and metamers in organisms is not in all cases a wholly exact one As has been said
